Registration closes soon for ‘Getting Into Multimedia 102’

Do your students have a Web site up and running? Are you in the planning stages of moving online? If either of those questions apply to you then you might want to consider taking HSBJ’s ‘Getting Into Multimedia 102′ Feb. 2-4. This online course will cover classroom items such as developing a beat system and organizing the staff. It will also work to show you ways to promote your Web site using a wide range of tools – from social networks to e-newsletters.
